Throwback Thursday: Larry Bird drops 50 points on the Dallas Mavericks
Relive one of Larry Legend's 50 point performances with this throwback to March 10th, 1986. Bird would add 11 rebounds and 5 assists to go along with his 50 points, but the Mavs would spoil the night by defeating the Celtics. Boston of course would go on to win the championship a few months later. Bird's third as a Celtic and the team's 16th. The Mavs actually built a pretty strong squad in the 80's, but were never able to get past the Lakers to make it to the Finals.
